Sleepy Maggie
Ashley MacIsaac Lyrics


__ ruidhle bhoidheach __ a bonny reel
Ruidhle bhoidheach, dannsa direach A bonny reel, a tidy dance
__ ruidhle bhoidheach __ a bonny reel
Ruidhle bhoidheach, dannsa direach A bonny reel, a tidy dance

Ciamar a ni mi dannsa direach How can I make a tidy dance
Ciamar a ni mi ruidhle bhoidheach How can I dance a bonny reel
Ciamar a ni mi dannsa direach How can I make a tidy dance
Dh'fhalbh am prionn as bonn mo chota The pin went from the hem of my coat

__ ruidhle bhoidheach __ a bonny reel
Ruidhle bhoidheach, dannsa direach A bonny reel, a tidy dance
__ ruidhle bhoidheach __ a bonny reel
Ruidhle bhoidheach, dannsa direach A bonny reel, a tidy dance

Ciamar a ni mi dannsa direach How can I make a tidy dance
Ciamar a ni mi ruidhle bhoidheach How can I dance a bonny reel
Dh'fhalbh am prionn as bonn mo chota The pin went from the hem of my coat

Thig am fidhleir, am fidhleir an nochd The fiddler, the fiddler will come tonight

Tha nid na circe-fraoiche The nest of the grouse
'S a' mhuilinn dubh, 's a' mhuilinn dubh In the black mill, in the black mill
Tha nid na circe-fraoiche The nest of the grouse
'S a' mhuilinn dubh o shamhraidh Is in the black mill since the summer time
Tha nid na circe-fraoiche The nest of the grouse
'S a' mhuilinn dubh, 's a' mhuilinn dubh In the black mill, in the black mill
Tha nid na circe-fraoiche The nest of the grouse
'S a' mhuilinn dubh o shamhraidh Is in the black mill since the summer time

Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman The black mill is moving around
Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman The black mill is moving around
Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman The black mill is moving around
'S e togairt dol a dhannsa And we expect to go dancing
Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman The black mill is moving around
Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman The black mill is moving around
Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman The black mill is moving around
'S e togairt dol a dhannsa And we expect to go dancing

Tha an crodh a' breith nan laogh __
Anns a' mhuilinn dubh, 's a' mhuilinn dubh In the black mill, in the black mill
Tha an crodh a' breith nan laogh __
Anns a' mhuilinn dubh o shamhradh In the black mill since the summer time
Tha an crodh a' breith nan laogh __
Anns a' mhuilinn dubh, 's a' mhuilinn dubh In the black mill, in the black mill
Tha an crodh a' breith nan laogh __
Anns a' mhuilinn dubh o shamhradh In the black mill since the summer time

Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman The black mill is moving around
Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman The black mill is moving around
Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman The black mill is moving around
'S e togairt dol a dhannsa And we expect to go dancing
Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman The black mill is moving around
Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman The black mill is moving around
Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman The black mill is moving around
'S e togairt dol a dhannsa And we expect to go dancing

__ ruidhle bhoidheach __ a bonny reel
Ruidhle bhoidheach, dannsa direach A bonny reel, a tidy dance
__ ruidhle bhoidheach __ a bonny reel
Ruidhle bhoidheach, dannsa direach A bonny reel, a tidy dance

Ciamar a ni mi dannsa direach How can I make a tidy dance

Boys in the foil and Some boys in the foil and some

Boys in the foil and some boys that do karate

Ciamar a ni mi dannsa direach
Ciamar a ni mi ruidhle bhoidheach
Ciamar a ni mi dannsa direach
Dh'Fhalbh am prionn aig bonn mo chota
Tha nid na circe-fraoiche
'S a' mhuilinn dubh, 's a' mhuilinn dubh
Tha nid na circe-fraoiche
'S a' mhuilinn dubh o shamhraidh
Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman
Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman
Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman
'S e togairt dol a dhannsa
'S iomadh rud saoil sibh
'S a' mhuilinn dubh, 's a' mhuilinn dubh
'S iomadh rud saoil sibh
'S a' mhuilinn dubh o shamhraidh


Roughly translated as:

How do I dance straight
How to make a beautiful reel
How do I dance straight
The pin disappeared at the bottom of my coat
There is no grouse
And the black mill, and the black mill
There is no grouse
And the mill in summer
The mill is black on thumbs
The mill is black on thumbs
The mill is black on thumbs
The dance is about dancing
There are many things in life
And the black mill, and the black mill
There are many things in life
And the mill in summer

Ciamar a ni mi dannsa direach
Ciamar a ni mi ruidhle bhoidheach
Ciamar a ni mi dannsa direach
Dh'Fhalbh am prionn aig bonn mo chota

Tha nid na circe-fraoiche
(The nest of the grouse)
'S a' mhuilinn dubh, 's a' mhuilinn dubh
(In the black mill, in the black mill)
Tha nid na circe-fraoiche
(The nest of the grouse)
'S a' mhuilinn dubh o shamhraidh
(Is in the black mill since the summer time)

Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman
(The black mill is moving around)
Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman
(The black mill is moving around)
Tha 'm muilinn dubh air thuraman
(The black mill is moving around)
'S e togairt dol a dhannsa
(And we expect to go dancing)

This has 90’s Much Music written all over it.👌

Indigo Sun Girl

Unfortunately a forgotten brilliance!! 💚💚💚💚💚

Abby Pitts

Every feel like those of us that REMEMBER this song from the 90's are the last generation that was....sane?

Medalion

@Sharon Ballantyne I don't think they were saying as an insult.

Matt Hill

I miss 90's Much Music

Sharon Ballantyne

I've always loved this song since I first heard it as a middle schooler in the mid-90s. I didn't care that I, a Toronto native of Asian descent, had no idea what the lyrics meant (or were, for that matter); I loved its rhythm, I loved the video, and goddamn it, I loved that fiddling.

I have a lot of Celtic ancestry and I do not know how speak amy of the Gaelic languages.
